“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.  Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

— Martin Luther King, Jr.

Shining Christmas

String the lights of Christmas!

Make the darkness bright!

Place a star atop the tree,

And marvel at its light!

Let the Christmas candle burn

Throughout the darkest night.

Fill your heart with Christmas Love

And shine with all your might!

A world so full of darkness

Once again, requires Light;

So open wide your joyful heart

Let Peace dispel the night.

Shine the Light of Christmas,

Make the darkness bright!
